What we do

Taking action to improve the Newcastle you know and love

We work on projects of all shapes and sizes to make Newcastle a greater place for all.

Our approach can best be described as “direct”. It matches a soaring ambition and the pragmatism to seize new opportunities. It combines a clear vision for Newcastle with the delivery of tangible projects which help deliver that vision. And fundamental always to the approach is remembering the importance of “the day job”. We don’t forget the basics; a clean, safe and welcoming city, and NE1’s role in providing these.

What we do

We’re getting the basics right

Ensuring Newcastle is cleaner, greener and safer environment for the millions of people that visit, work and socialise in the city centre every year. 

Our Street Rangers and Clean Team are a key part of keeping our city environment clean.

Attracting and promoting

Newcastle is home to the region’s finest restaurants and bars as well as a wide range of independent and high street retailers, all complemented by world-class cultural venues. 

We deliver events and animation to keep the city vibrant, different and interesting so people will visit more frequently, stay longer and spend more whilst they are here.
